Sri Ramana Tiru Venba - (1)
« on: November 28, 2008, 12:26:20 PM »
Sri Ramana Tiru Venba is modelled on Tiru Venba of Saint Manikkavachagar, in Tiruvachakam.  Murugnar has composed
two sets of poems on the same title.  The first one, consists of
31 verses.

Verse 1 reads as under:

My Father Ramana, if one knows His Nature,
He is the Substance of Jnana, which snaps the bondage,
If one understands his Words, which is the Truth of Agamas,
That is the final substance, end of all, faultless words of Ramana.

Verse 4 reads as under:-

He is the one, who touched the Heart of Manikkavachagar,
And stayed there, as the Venerable Court of gold,
He is the sliver-court of Pandya Kingdom, he seeks,
The silvery white Hearts of all, who seek Him.
